I mean seriously, there was that horrible cover of "OOH LA LA" where he gave himself writer's credit when he wouldn't even sing the song when The Faces recorded it. (It was released a couple of months after Laney's death too, how tacky!)
But you didn't read this review so you could hear about how crappy one of his other "come-back" albums was. You want to know how bad this album is. Fine. It's horrible. Really, really bad. Back when Stewart was with the Faces he was great, and do to the music hall influence at the heart of their music I could see how on paper this was a back-to-his-roots type project. But as a big jazz fan, and a fan of Stewarts early stuff I must say that beyond the horrible voice, Rod's heart just isn't in this stuff.
My recommendation? Go check out the new re-release of Ronnie Lane's Slim Chance. He was the heart and soul of the Faces, and does a marvelous cover of Fats Waller's "I'm Going To Sit Right Down And Write Myself A Letter." That's what this album should have sounded like, but Laney's music has always been what Stewart's post-Faces music should have sounded like.
